Amelia Iredell Johnston, b. 1838 Washington Co. Alabama, was the daughter of the widow of Levi Ainsworth, Martha _________, b. bef 1803--and James Johnston, b. abt 1776 Va., d.abt 1851 Washington Co. Alabama
Three illegitimate children, Lafayette, Jane Amelia and Amelia were acknowledged in the will of James Johnston and Martha Ainsworth.
would IREDELL be the maiden name of Martha --or did James Johnston have an Iredell relative?
James Johnston was the son of John Johnston and Joyce Powell. Maybe if we could get further back, there might be an Iredell grandparent.
